Now that free agency is underway and the Knicks have missed out on acquiring a few of the players who they had on the top of their wish list, it’s time to go after their “plan-b” targets.
The player the Knicks wanted the most this offseason was two-time MVP, Steve Nash. They even believed they had a sign-and-trade for Nash in “critical stages” before he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers all of a sudden.
The Knicks countered that loss by going out and signing one of the best assist men in NBA history, Jason Kidd. Kidd will serve as a great mentor for Jeremy Lin, who they will most likely retain after they match the Houston Rocket’s offer to him.
Here are a few other plan-b targets the New York Knicks should sign this offseason.
